clamps its lateral stanchion past the tide upbringing metal’s weary shore where latter frenzy pockets disallow pastoral replica gliding and other shores of vapid emulation revamping

a sense of the grand refulgence of a fatter impresario than guidelines or scattershot dicta will allow, intense as their carriage bearing might wheel up the steppes if tearing up the lift appears to the impossible. Hammock lounges articulate the influx of gutted emporium batters, a remix owed to the last assemblage worn c to force hiding tarpaulin scores from ht ni r peace-torn retrospectives. The delays o in gis epe force wearisome ousters to reseat the c n r pendulum before the next motorcade or ai suc m simulacra tourist conveys a sordid particle s ta oi xir toward a denouement relayed to the forward n line waiting for a whisper from the new emblem slipping past its back pocket. A latter-day feint, as proscribed by amateur inductions, matters as faintly as the clarity assembled in the widest divisions there or near where the diversions hide from restless sleep. A passive merriment ensues, all its clues remaining the mystery behind the symmetry of the last facade renewed

recent memory lost among the passengers

a narrative gridlock spared the fairborn anchored newly heights bedazzled scrotal frenzy button. The shove stared down the time frame, turned complex in the simplest modality. Gluttons store the passage of time’s reflex. The grating blips conceal a queried diagram whose reigning obstacle slipped past the poachers who roasted concept papers on bare dusk.The wrappers left over tides slapped jeers against a basket. Later, rushes masked the filtration masters directing the slippage as the motif of a decomposition manual stating itself at the backdrop slurred otherword fantasies as they popped the littered surface during a goat meal. Operational strata recast the sediment in past taxonomies while forefront crumbling remains a body sport ordered for the mainland’s stream to buoy the scabbard hollows at bellow time. In the face of surly nitrate regimens, the spouters cast the least of past resorts, along the coddling specimen drops where their anecdotes have become bloodied apocrypha

Rotor failure assumed the legend of a diamond influenza in a season of night heat. The false sundown fixes mantra filters to their best speculation, before the hovering recedes at critical juncture, a nullified obligato at the sidelines of a cheerful frontage.
